WTT: World TeamTennis - (Exho Tournament) | Week 1 complete!

WTT: World TeamTennis






HOW IT WORKS?

World TeamTennis is a professional tennis league played with a team format in the United States. Eight teams will compete in the league in a round robin format. The top four will play semifinals (1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3) for a spot in the Final.
Each Tie consists of five matches including 4 singles and 1 doubles (just like Fed Cup).

Home Team - 105 points for each player
Away Team - 102 points for each player


Since our tour has Thursday-Sunday matches, we'll be playing Tuesdays and Wednesdays of July (9th and 10th, 16th and 17th, 23rd and 24th, TBA).
This is a exho tournament so you are allowed to play here and the main tour. No ranking points will be offered but an opportunity to test new strategies and create friendships enemies and some drama



DRAFT

A draft is a process to allocate certain players to teams. In a draft, teams take turns selecting from a pool of eligible players. In our scenario, random.org will be used to choose in which team you will play. Each team will have three or four players (respecting maximum of 1 Top 5 player and 2 Top 10 players).



HOW TO SIGN-UP?

First of all, each player can select three teams she would like to play, in order of preference. In addition, you should answer two questions:

1) Which FWTT player would you choose to play on your team? Why?
2) Which FWTT player would you never choose to play on your team? Why?


So your entry will be like the Example:

Name of your player
Team preference #1
Team preference #2
Team preference #3
Answer 1
Answer 2


This is not a guarantee that your wishes will come true, though.



HOW TO SEND POINTS?

Once the teams are complete, a captain must be elected. This player will be responsible for collecting points from team mates and sending it for me. It'll be better explained in the future.
We'll follow FWTT rules to calculate scores.

Based on the number of players and the engagement, the number of teams and ties may be adjusted I hope we can grab at least 24 players! Suggestions are welcome


Deadline to commit: Saturday 11h AM GMT

Draft: Saturday

Re: WTT: World TeamTennis - Rules and Sign-Up (Exho Tournament)

Ariana Salvatore
1 - Orlando Storm
2 - San Diego Aviators
3 - New York Empire
Q1: I'd choose Jen Casanova because she's a great player and we get along well.
Q2: I'd never choose Regla Torres because she would go MIA mid-tournament and I don't like her coach, that @Sam L .

Re: WTT: World TeamTennis - Rules and Sign-Up (Exho Tournament)

1 San Diego Aviators
2 Orlando Storm
3 Orange County Breakers
Q1: Kathleen Pryde-Degman because she's an amazing player and doubles partner
Q2: I would never choose Vittoria Perez or Magdalena Malygina because they hated me and I hate drama

P.S. This is an awesome idea

Re: WTT: World TeamTennis - Rules and Sign-Up (Exho Tournament)

Anastasia Nemayeva
1. Philadelphia Freedoms
2. Washington Kastles
3. Orange County Breakers
Q1: The obvious answer would be Harlow but I'm going with Tyler-Malone. She's been doing a lot for the game and seems a wonderful person. A second option would be Salvatore cause her coach is also brazilian
Q2: I would never choose Park for obvious reasons. I need revenge. Also I'd rather young people in my team
